This Is What $1,000 A Month In Rent Would Get You All Around The US

Let's all move to North Carolina, people.

Posted on

Brooklyn — $1,000

Size: 300-square-foot studio

Neighborhood: Bedford-Stuyvesant

Amenities: It does have hardwood floors and high ceilings, but the kitchen is so close to the bed that you could probably cook an omelette while taking a nap. Also, there's a communal bathroom to share with other tenants, and nothing says "fun" like a toilet clogged with someone else's fecal matter.


Cleveland — $1,175

Size: A three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath, single-family home

Neighborhood: Cleveland Heights

Amenities: To start, it's a house. AN ENTIRE HOUSE, PEOPLE. There's a second floor and a two-car garage. Also, you know you're an IRL adult when you live in a house that has a security system.

Augusta, Georgia — $750

Size: A two-bedroom floor of a historic home that covers 1,100 square feet

Neighborhood: Olde Town

Amenities: A huge living room with a fireplace. A clawfoot tub. Central air. A massive backyard. And...wait for it...A PORCH SWING. Pack up your parent's car and move to this house RN.

New York City — $960

Size: Not listed, but seeing as your bed also serves as the doorstopper, probably not a ton of space

Neighborhood: Little Italy

Amenities: This apartment boasts having central air, but you'll have to enjoy it with a stranger...who will be your brand new roommate. (Yes, he already lives there.) You and this strangermate will be cool AF all summer long.

Portland, Oregon — $1,275

Size: A 1-bedroom apartment

Neighborhood: Belmont

Amenities: This spot has the hook-up for lazy people. Why? It includes a microwave and a dishwasher. Also, it's close to 3 bus routes so you can be driven around town by your chauffeur aka the bus driver.


Atlanta — $1,050

Size: A 624-square-foot studio in a trendy area

Neighborhood: Old Fourth Ward

Amenities: Well, there's a fully equipped fitness center and an outdoor BBQ complete with a picnic area, aka it's your time to get jacked and eat a ton of ribs.


These listings were updated and clarified to show more accurately what you get for the money.

A few others were swapped because the deal really WAS too good to be true and possibly a scam (lookin' at you Portland and Asheville). H/t to our commenters for pointing this out
